This isn't my whole life

Wednesday, April 01, 2009

But it sure seems like it has to be

It takes so much time to enter everything

And then at least an hour of exercising everyday

I work fulltime

I need to study for my charter test

Somehow I need to figure out how to make this easier

If you have ideas on how to get it done...not just skip parts, leave me a comment

    Hi Theresa,
This is what I do and I also work fulltime:

I log MANUALLY( I know it's kind of old fanshioned) all my food for the morning-lunch until I get home and then all I have to do is log what I've had for dinner.

Everyday on SP I list all my water,veggies and exercise first off cuz I know I'm doing all this already. Throughout my day I catch up on all the other things I can get points for.

I hope this helps.

    Theresa, You could always carry a notebook and just log everything once or twice a week when you have time. I carry one with me in case I get busy and don't have time to log everything. I write it down and when I have time enter everything. Unfortunately life gets in the way and we just have to find ways around it. Good luck.

    Enter only the basic . Food and exercise.
Pick a time of the day when you log in everything you need.

Check out the reports section

I did a review of my month and was really surprised that I was really all over the chart

Gave me some things to focus on for the new month


Chipotle CAN be done!

Monday, March 30, 2009

My daughter has been begging to go to Chipotle because she won a giftcard at school for a free burrito. I figured I would have to plan it in to make it work. Monday my shot day is the best day for me to eat out so we did it today. I was trying to "plan" for it all day but had a hard time finding the nutrition info and fitting it with my other stuff.

I printed out the nutrition info and kind of tried to plan what I would have but I was trying to gear myself too much towards the best choice instead of something I would really eat. Sometimes the best choice isn't going to satisfy our body or mind.

I took my nutrition info printout to the local Chipotle and the manager was so nice. emoticonHe showed me where the printout was wrong, measured everything for me, and made me a vegetarian burrito without Guacamole. The worst thing about this was the sodium.

I came home and searched for "Chipotle Vegetarian Burrito" on the food tracker...Whoa!!!! It was like 1155 calories and over 3000 mg sodium ....not like mine at all, I HAD to enter mine. emoticon It was 670 calories, satisfied my burrito craving, shut my daughter up for a few hours anyway, and I feel good that I didn't just accept standard and the manager was so helpful and understanding.

AND I still have room for a small snack.

    Good for you, Theresa!!! I'm really proud that you asked the manager for help (& kind of surprised he actually did). This is a HUGE victory!!!

    Good job Theresa! Wow how did you get the manager to help you? We have small local only restaurants and they are always willing to help out if your watching what you eat. Keep up the good work.

Men are from Mars

My hubby knows that on the weekend my focus is on exercise and studying

Yet he can think of a hundred other things that I should do

I am not changing - well not the priorities

But I am enforcing my need for exercise much more


I am enforcing my tracking of food

He was shocked to see how many calories his choice of breakfast was

But "Honey, you didn't eat that much"

He was still no where close on my food choices either

Maybe this will make a difference to him too

Went to the gym but really wasn't into it

Did stuff, just wasn't there really

I wonder if you burn less calories when you are not really into your workout.
